The practice of childbirth in another country is getting more and more common around the world. The main reason is to obtain second citizenship at the place of birth. Second citizenship and a second passport can provide your child with more freedom to travel, less tax liability, access to cheaper and better healthcare and education, better employment and investment opportunities. No matter how your child's life turns out, second citizenship will provide them with more opportunities and freedom of choice. Besides, a simplified naturalization process for the parents is usually provided in the country where their child was born.
Under Mexican legislation, a child born in Mexico is automatically granted Mexican citizenship. A Mexican passport allows visa-free entry to 139 countries, including the European Union. The cost of childbirth in Mexico is much lower than in the USA. Cancun and Riviera Maya – Mexican Caribbean – is one of the world's most renowned resorts and, in recent years, a popular destination for international medical tourism.
Mexico, considering the above advantages combined with reasonable prices and wonderful climate, is becoming one of the popular destinations for women from abroad who are interested in comfortable conditions and a high level of medical care during childbirth and want to provide dual citizenship for a child.
